The developer of the Kickstarter funded adventure RPG Quest for Infamy recently announced two new projects, which they aim to release by the end of 2015. One is a prequel to Quest for Infamy and the other is the first game in a planned anthology series.


Quest for Infamy: Roehm to Ruin is the planned prequel to Quest for Infamy and will be a challenging puzzle oriented point-and-click adventure game with optional hidden objects to be found for additional in-game rewards. The game tells the story of how the protagonist, Mister Roehm, got in trouble with the baron he is on the run from in Quest for Infamy. The game will not be a full-length game and will be sold at a lower price.


Order of the Thorne: The King's Challenge will be the first in the anthology of games set in the fantasy realm of Uir. You will take the role of Finn the Bard, who has a magical lute that he can use to solve puzzles. This sounds similar to how you solve puzzles in Loom; something that has me excited, as I feel this is an underused game mechanic in adventure games. In this first instalment you are one of the challengers in a competition held by the King to find his missing Queen.

Both games will use the open source Adventure Game Studio engine, which was also used in their previous game. Quest for Infamy recently won four categories in the AGS Awards 2014; including the awards for best gameplay and best puzzles. I have only put about half an hour into the game so far, but I like what I've seen and I look forward to hearing more about their upcoming games. Article taken from

Oh yes!
Quest for Infamy was an excellent game with a humor to match. Definitely they have made a name for themselves and I'm sold as long as there is a Linux version.

reminds me so much of the old Quest for Glory (Hero's Quest) and King's Quest sort of games. The Book of Unwritten Tales is a very similar game as well, was very fun to play. The Quest for Glory series is by far my all time favorite. Quest for Infamy will be one to grab for sure

If you are into such types of adventure games, try out also the Heroine's Quest:

If they don't offer a Linux version (they only planned to), just build AGS from source and run it with the game data.
